Brooklyn Nets small forward Gerald Wallace suffered a left heel contusion in the second quarter of Wednesday night's game against the Boston Celtics and had to be carried off the court and into the locker room by teammates Brook Lopez and Reggie Evans.
The Nets announced at halftime that Wallace would not return. He left the locker room after the game in a walking boot and is day to day, according to Newsday.
Wallace suffered the injury when he tripped over Celtics forward Chris Wilcox while trying to guard Jordan Crawford.
In 15 minutes, Wallace scored two points on 1-of-3 shooting. He also grabbed two rebounds, dished out two assists and had two turnovers.
Wallace, struggling with his confidence shooting the ball, did not record a field goal in his previous two games.
Over the past 17 games, he is just 3 of 35 from 3-point range.
